Introduction

These are instructions for building Fennec for Nokia Maemo using the Scratchbox cross-compilation environment on Linux.

Maemo 5 (Fremantle)

We currently use the Maemo 4 SDK for our official Firefox for Maemo 1.x builds, because Maemo 5 is not compatible with the Nokia N800/N810. If you want to build with the Maemo 5 SDK, see the instructions at /Fremantle.

Maemo 4 (Chinook)

sudo su
echo "deb http://scratchbox.org/debian/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update
apt-get install scratchbox-toolchain-cs2007q3-glibc2.5-arm6 
exit

# do the section below if on ubuntu 8.04, skip for Ubuntu 7.1.  Other OS may
# also have this problem.  If you see a problem when running nsinstall that
# says something "mmap - permission denied", come back here an try this.
# Ubuntu 8.10 sets vm.mmap_min_addr /etc/sysctl.d/10-process-security.conf
# So it is probably better to set the following variables in
# /etc/sysctl.d/40-scratchbox
# and then run 'sudo invoke-rc.d procps restart'
##############
# add the following to /etc/sysctl.conf

vm.vdso_enabled = 0
vm.mmap_min_addr = 4096

Then run
sudo sysctl -p

# Continue from here for all versions of Ubuntu, including 7.10

exit

Now continue to Mobile/Build/Fennec to check out and build the Fennec source code.

Electrolysis

To build the Electrolysis branch, see Mobile/e10s.

Qt

Future versions of Maemo will be based primarily on Qt instead of GTK. To build with Qt see User:Pjohnsen/MozillaQtBuild.

Notes on 64 Bit Ubuntu Ibex

Scratchbox contains 32 bit binaries which must be accommodated on a 64 bit system. The easiest way to do this is with a 32 bit chroot. Scratchbox also uses a chroot - so they will be executing 2 deep when the build is done.

Steps 1 through 4 in http://danielkitta.org/howto/maemo-amd64 provide a guide to setting up a 32 bit chroot under ubuntu. Use "hardy" or "intrepid" instead of "dapper" in the instructions in order to have a glibc current enough to run scratchbox.

When that is complete, change to the chroot (linux32 dchroot -c hardy-i386 -d) and you can install scratchbox largely based on the instructions above, with a few modifications:

  • change `uname -m` in maemo-scratchbox-install to be `linux32 uname -m`
  • in sysctl.conf, instead of vm.vdso_enabled =0 , use abi.vsyscall32 = 0 (do this in the real root, not the chroot), Indeed this is needed for either 32 or 64 bit Ibex.
  • make certain binfmt_misc is loaded (modprobe -a binfmt_misc)
  • inside chroot make sure /proc is mounted (mount /proc)
